New Rootstech 2016 Keynote Speakers Announced

Rootstech 2016 has surprised me again with their keynote choice. Rootstech 2015 choices were seeming out there, but all were very enjoyable. Rootstech 2016 will no doubt be just as memorable, and I can’t wait to hear from them. I love hearing new voices, people who get the importance of connect with family and sharing their story.

John Davis and wife Naomi (Taza) from the blog Love Taza were just announced as the newest keynote presenters. Rootstech sent me the following info on them, “Since 2007, Love Taza has become more than an online diary—it is a digital destination where millions around the world connect and find a feeling of inspiration and a guide for finding joy in everyday life. Naomi shares details of her life in New York City with her husband and children celebrating family, home, travel, food, and, most importantly, the simple joys of life. With Josh’s help, the two have transformed her website into a global business with a massive, engaged audience.”

Rootstech 2016 has already announced the following keynote presenters:

  • Media exec Paula Madison
  • Author and commentator Bruce Feiler
  • Pulitzer Prize Winning author and historian, Doris Kearns Goodwin
  • FamilySearch new CEO, Steve Rockwood

Rootstech has yet to announce their entertainers for the event, but if last year’s event was any indicator, it will not disappoint.

  1. It is interesting to see their choices each year. Some years I have wondered how they apply to family history, but once I hear them I am able to see how somehow they all do fit into the puzzle, whether it be recording family history or making family history. Like you, I can’t wait to hear what they have in store for us this year.

    • I agree, I look forward to hearing from the keynotes this year. I think you will be surprised at how their message will add to your own family storytelling. Hope to see you there!
